One month on and I have two unfinished doilys. But I am quite pleased with its progress. This is doily no. 2 with the trees finished. Tatted in two solid colours, you can see the interlocking rings more clearly and appreciate its beauty. . . . . I hope?
I am helping a friend string these together. Using white silk threads, a knot is tied after each pearl. Lovely matt colours. I rather enjoyed this. Took me 3 hours to tie this strand together but the ending isn't perfect.
Tatted in Flora Size 20 in mint green and pink. I think this pattern appeals to many people, thanks to Tomoko Morimoto. I think I will put the two motifs on a coaster. I just had to tat something else besides trees for the African Sky doily. Perfect distraction.
This is what greets you at Gardens by the Bay near the escalator. Carved from one piece of wood. On another note, Singapore is often known as the lion city but it is unlikely that lions ever existed in Singapore. Read about how Singapore got its name here.
While joining the trees to my doily, I got a little restless and decided to start a new 'Under An African Sky' doily. This time I was going to use more solid colours but could not help myself but to add the variegated blue for the sky. Looking forward to seeing the trees here? Stay tuned!
